I have Verizon and I want to buy a Blackberry Curve 8330. I would have to pay an extra $30 a month for it. Is it worth it? What all can I do on it thats included with this monthly fee?

Well, my experience with a blackberry didn't do so well. The scroll ball stopped working after about 5 months.

I didn't have the internet on it tho, I didn't feel like getting raped for it.

The Curve is not the best. My wife has upgraded hers to the Bold and it is almost perfect with full WiFi etc. The Blackberry weakness is the mini trackball which is fiddly and easy to break. Fortunately Blackberry are replacing it about now with touchpad.

The sole purpose of blackberry phones is to provide me with a means of quickly and efficiently identifying twats.

Thus far, they haven't failed me.

I have the Tour, and it's been infinitely useful for me. Not only can I google things in a matter of seconds to prove that I am, in fact, always right in arguments, but I have access to my four email accounts and all kinds of professional contacts. I'm a band manager and I've already set up an entire endorsement deal from my blackberry. Things like that make it wayyyy worth it.

What will you be using it for? Having a Blackberry for the sake of it isn't worth it.

It depends what you need your phone for.

I have one but I conduct a lot of business from it, the easy access to my e-mail is a huge help, as well as the GPS/Maps features because I travel a lot.

If you need a phone for just calls it probably isn't for you.

i have the 8310 and love it. i find it good because i text a lot but in general, blackberry phones are worth it imo.

and you can always replace the trackball with a new one. it isnt too hard unless you are really clumsy with tools lol

How does having a certain phone make you a twat? Right now, you look like more of a twat than anybody I know that owns a Blackberry.

And TS, it depends what you use it for. A Blackberry can either be a great buy, or a waste of money. If you're going to use all of the features, go for it.

I have a 8330 curve, the only problem I have with it is unless you have internet in your data plan it costs a lot of money to use it and there's no wifi on it. But it's really nice for texting and bbm is cool. Also email is kinda nice to have.

My Curve 8900 is amazing, I love it. The trackball has very rarely given me any problems.
However the only thing that stopped me getting a 3GS is that I get retention rewards or whatever for staying with my current network and honestly didn't want to switch networks because it wouldnt have been worth it. Once the iPhone comes out on a decent contract, I think I will get that when my current contract runs out, simply because there are so many amazing applications.

Needless to say, BlackBerrys are the next best thing and many people think they are the current best thing to get as a phone at the moment

There's a difference between saying you're a twat because you own a blackberry and blackberry are owned by twats.

The phones are crap.
